I cut my own hair NeilJ using Wahl Professional Clippers, which I must have had for over 30 odd years. I have carried out many styles over the years and have now settled on a No 6 for the back and sides and a go over with the scissors on the little bit I have on the top. I may take this shorter, usually do if/when I am in hot climes.Before the pandemic I used to go to the barbers every 3 weeks for a grade 2 buzz cut on my balding head. During lockdown I started cutting my own hair using clippers, gradually getting shorter to prolong the time for another trim but to be honest it was a hassle cleaning the clippers, floor and myself up afterwards, not to mention squaring my neckline. About a month ago I decided to shave it with my Vector which did a very good job. I have since bought a Leaf which is an amazing head shaver and I shave my head every couple of days. I did feel slightly self conscious at first but it soon wears off. I now love the feeling of splashing on some aftershave and some balm after shaving. I kind of feel scruffy now if I have more than 2 days growth. I know some people are petrified of losing their hair but if it’s going I think embracing is the way to go. It’s always easier to row with the current than against.
They supplement box has tripled in size since then. I would say so. I have hair where there wasn't before. But it's a long process.
black seed oil and jamaican black castor oil are two that are recommended for stronger thicker and and hair growth, check it out on youtube and youll see loads of women using it on their 'edges' to grow them back or thicken themGood to read.
I have hair in places where I didn't before, but that's largely on my shoulders!
Saj recommended some oils for my beard, and I made a blend of a few things (neem, almond, coconut, castor) which aside from using for my beard, I have been massaging some into my scalp every other day.
I've not much hair loss to notice right now, but a few months back pretty much everytime I ran my fingers through my hair I'd have a lot of hairs in my hands, especially when in the shower. Ditto for my beard as well, I'd comb out lots of hairs, and always have an itchy face. Not much of that to speak of since I started using the grim smelling oil mix. The oil blend smells foul (that's the neem!) but I'm convinced in the 2 months I have been using it my scalp and my hair is the healthiest it's ever been.
